Young conductor swings silver (April 9, 2003)

Twenty-two-yearold Vietnamese student Tran Nhat Minh has clinched the second prize for choral conducting at the Third International Music Concours in Vladivostok, southeast Russia. The competition runs from March 28 to April 7.

Mr Minh, the only Vietnamese competitor in the choral conducting heats, beat 28 other contestants from around the world to receive applause from judges and audiences alike.

Mr Minh was born into a non-musical family in Ho Chi Minh City, but began learning the piano at a very early age.

Whilst still at high school, he completed a piano degree at the Ho Chi Minh City Music Conservatory.

His achievements didn't go unnoticed, and Minh was soon sent to study choral conducting in Russia. He is now a third year student at the Magnitogorsk National Conservatory in the southern Ural region of Russia.

Minh has mustered new enthusiasm from his success at the competition, and now hopes to become a professional conductor.

"After completing my studies, I want to return home and devote my skills to developing conducting in Vietnam," he said.

Pianists and string musicians are also taking part in the Vladivostok competition, which features 280 competitors from Russia, Japan, China, South Korea, Mongolia and Vietnam. (VNS)
